Determined effort to link in the face of warnings
is only a behavior problem
once it has been established that making the link is inappropriate and the
warnings are necessary. But for the attack sites policy, this is the *very
thing in dispute*.
Please try to separate the two issues. No separate policy is needed
in order to request people not to link to sites that habitually engage
in harassment and outing. Existing policies already cover this, as
was made plain in the MONGO arbitration. It's an unreliable source
(hence invalid in the article) and a site rife with harassment (hence
inappropriate in project space).
*Pages with attacks*, not *the entire site*.
The problem I have with the way the MONGO ruling is being enforced is
that -- apparently -- a single admin can, on the basis of an attack on
a single page, decide that the site including that page is "an attack
site", and then that decision automatically means that *no page on
that entire site* can ever be linked to from anywhere in enwiki.
I'm sorry, but it's absurd.
